Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Popped in for lunch after leaving the Walled Garden cafe after no one bothered to take our order. Staff here were lovely and it is dog-friendly in the first part of the cafe. We had toasties and my eldest had a massive burger which he...enjoyed greatly! Food is standard cafe stuff and well cooked and excellent value - £32 for lunch for 4!More

Very accommodating for those with food intolerances. Staff understand the difference between food allergies v food intolerances which can sometimes be a challenge. Nice food & good service. Decor is a little strange!!

Come here regularly. Highly recommended. The Large Scottish breakfast is the best anywhere locally. Reasonably priced. The Quaich has a good menu and Specials board. Friendly and efficient staff. Well worth a visit.

Oh wow! Lovely breakfast, lovely staff, great pricing. If you’re local, on holiday or just passing through I highly recommend this place to eat. Being a new local myself I think I’ve found my breakfast spot. Superb.

I honestly can’t wait to visit The Quaich soon. We will never forget the experience, waiting staff very professional and had a smile. The young lady came round with a pot of coffee to ask if we would like a top up, you just can’t...get this service anywhere else. Thank you very much. 😍More

My wife and I ate here this morning. We were warmly welcomed and allowed to “pick and choose” from the various breakfast menus, which was essential due to our dietary requirements. The food was absolutely lovely, cooked to perfection. A free coffee top up was...offered and happily accepted and the bill was extremely reasonable. This was a lovely experience from start to finish. We will be back! Well done The QuaichMore
